Abstract: SUPER, a Study of User Priorities for e-infrastructure for Research, was a six-month effort funded by the UK e-Science Core Programme and JISC to inform investment so as to provide a usable, useful, and accessible e-infrastructure for all researcher, and a coherent set of e-infrastructure services that would increase usage by at least a factor of ten by 2010. Through a series of unstructured face to face interviews with over 45 participants from 30 different projects we have observed recurring issues relating to collaborative file management and policy, the need for tools to support dynamic virtual organisations, the support of project teams with services and training, operational issues (such as authentication, license management and reliability) and how end-users interact with e-infrastructure services through the available tools. We finish with a list of possible future activities for further prioritisation and adoption.
